Often referred to as the "Pioneer Capital of the Peace River Region," the Village of Pouce Coupe is the oldest municipality in the area, having incorporated in 1932. It is a quiet little community that sits overlooking the Pouce Coupe River surrounded by rolling hills and crop laden fields.

Today, approximately 740 people reside in Pouce Coupe in some 290 private dwellings. While there are currently few vacant houses within the Village, several development-ready residential lots in Pouce Coupe are capable of meeting anticipated demand for housing.

Pouce Coupe's main industries are petroleum, agriculture, and tourism. Popular recreational activities in the area include cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, hiking, and hunting.

Commercial development in Pouce Coupe is located on the north side of the Village. Demand for additional commercial and industrial development is expected to increase in proportion to the population growth rate within the Village and the surrounding area. With the exception of the Hart Hotel, these commercial uses serve primarily a local market. The Hart Hotel provides tourist accommodation, a restaurant, a beer parlour, and a social gathering place for a market considerably larger than Pouce Coupe and its surrounding area.

Pouce Coupe is regarded throughout the Peace Region as an exceptional retirement community, with approximately 30 percent of its residents over 60 years of age. To accommodate this large proportion of elderly people, the Village contains several seniors' facilities and housing options, including Tremblay House and the Senior Citizens' Centre. A main priority of Village Council is the safety, convenience, and well-being of its elderly residents.
